Abstract:

This research program was undertaken to provide data with which to test the validity of the point defect model developed by macdonald and co-workers to describe the growth and breakdown of films on metals. The study is comprised of two tasks. Task 1 is an investigation of the growth of passive films on nickel and iron in phosphate solutions whereas Task 2 is concerned with the film breakdown behavior on single crystal and polycrystalline metals Ni, Fe and alloys Fe-Ni, Fe-Ni-Cr in borate buffer solutions with chloride present.
